You pray for it. Long for it. Look for it. And know it’s exactly what you need. But it doesn’t happen. At least not in the way you’d been hoping. But something does happen. Or, more to the point, God happens. And when God happens you quickly discover what God does is infinitely better than anything you could ever come up with on your own. Which is why you should spend a whole lot less energy telling God what to do and a whole lot more energy tuning in to what God already is doing in your life. Because when you figure out what God’s up to – even if it’s different from what you tried to get God to do – you will come face-to-face with one of the most liberating truths you’ll ever discover: your certainties will never begin to measure up to God’s surprises.
